Forum: GratefulDead Subject: 1979 gem just in

Spent the morning with soldiers and sailors listening to one of the most recent additions here. Great quality and some nice tone from Jer's guitar, particularly on the recently mentioned 'Althea'.

I believe it's available from a site near here.

Was just about to post about this. The SBD and AUD sources alone are lacking in different areas, but this pristine Matrix fills in the holes on the two sources and results in amazing sound of yet another strong Fall/Winter 79 show. As for that Althea, also check Phil. His sound is just about perfect on this.

Happiness is a warm Matrix. And this one is smokin'. Looks like I've found a companion to speed along my Friday.

Yay.

UPDATE: First set is very laid back. Solid, but very mellow. Second set is much more energetic with a funkadellic Shakedown followed up with a frenetic Samson that oozes into a fantastic series of Lost Sailor> Saint Jam>Saint>Estimated Jam>Drums that just reeks of late 79 hugeness.

Yay, high flow! Did the sanctimonious motherhumpers turn you away at the door also? And verily did I not predict that their walls would come a-tumbling down on the day they admitted the devious Direwolf into their fold? So let it be written - so let it be done!

Rob, it was not Dire who precipitated the conflagration. The true origin of the problem is the all too prevalent Deadhead's attitude of, "I can get it for nothing and therefore need to show gratitude to none." The "DH guy" has tried to give wings to the site in various ways. His efforts have been met with a modicum of gratitude, but also with an equal dose scorn. When you are invited to stay free in someone's "house", it is unwise to float a turd in his punch bowl.

User - I'd rather hoped that the 'yay verily' would flag up that my post wasn't entirely serious (partly, but not entirely). Dire is a rapscallion of the first order but he is no destroyer of other people's websites. We joked about DH's days being numbered when he first signed up there, but that is all it was, just joking. Deadhook's 'feel' isn't for me - but I don't wish the place harm.

On your other points I'm in agreement with you. The 'something for nothing' attitude isn't just a DH problem, its never too far away here either. We have so much here that really is offered freely and yet there are always those who want a bit more. I agree absolutely that if you're invited into someone's house you should respect the house rules. And I for one am glad that there are people like Diana around helping to keep the house in order.

No worries brother. I know of Dire's rep, but in reality I think DB summed him up fairly well when she said, "You're just a big mush."

My "turd in the punch bowl" comment was addressing the blatant disrespect I saw displayed there more than the respect for the house rules. I was terribly surprised at the reaction of those at "The Kindest Place On The Internet".

Hmmm...I keep missing things around here and around there.

Nobody ever tells me anything.

I, of course, figure that once I show up anywhere, things are going to be fine.

What else do I carry this second bolt for? If things get out of hand, I can always take out a member of the local monarchy. Of course, in this present world, since all I can do is type, what's it really going to amount to?

I will point out that of the many folks from here that showed at Hook over the last year, BE, Dire, GoP, and I seem to be the primary ones that "stuck" and there are
even a few that came this way (User, etc). As Rob said, there may be an insidious relationship there...

Ouch...well, rather Touche.

I hope that all can understand LMA humor, sarcasm and insensitivity of that latter remark.

I strive for consistency if nothing else. Lapses of contrition when appropriate. Note posts above for evidence. Nonetheless, I am, fundamentally, cheap.

Fie, good Tell - recall Emerson:

"A foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds, adored by little statesmen and philosophers and divines."

Speak as you are moved to speak and don't be concerned if you appear to contradict what you said before. All is mutable and contingent. It is the way of things.

Cheap you may very well be - but you are without doubt the only one of you on the stall.


Now, back to our regularly scheduled program of sarcastic insensitivity.

Well spoke, good friend.

And, to be clear, hope you realize I (me) was the one being sarcastic. You, and much better than I in this regard, are both consistent, and need I say, a more enjoyable read than me any day...I've been waffling back and forth worrying about who I upset for most of the day...fortunately, I fear not with you. Well, I can hope anyhow.

I just took a brief glance over there and it looks like y'all have a much bigger issue than any interpersonal ones. Looks like the site's struggling to stay afloat and people are apparently weighing the merits of ad support, right? But then there's apparently all that Dead music being hosted, and the Dead have that pointedly no-ads policy.

I'm just rank and file and not privy to all the inner workings, but the music hosting forum is one that is in consideration of being dropped. It now seems there may be a rational solution peeking through all the emotional BS.

Damn. I guess that answers my question (see above).

Suppose that means I was part of the problem. Though even if I had a change of heart, it was going to be too little too late.

Oh well, give my regards to the family, and let them know I at least never intended to lead any of them to believe I was ever anything other than the cheap bastard I appear to be.

Wm.T. I don't think you were part of "THE PROBLEM", as I don't recall you ever attacking the gracious host with insidious comments. I also don't recall you participating in the childish flame war that developed there. It really did get quite LMA-like and that is scary, especially since Tito was banned and had nothing to do with the demise of the site.

Although now it appears that the reports of the death of Deadhook may have been exaggerated.

Thanks yet again. I meant that in the more general sense of my reluctance to part with a few bucks to keep it going.

But, deeply appreciate your efforts to keep me informed.

I did truly enjoy my time there, and when appropriate, be sure to let Beka and DMax know I will think of them often. And, that little cutie in the hoodie--the one, like you (goes without saying I'll recall you--esp bumping into you here) with the "g's" and "c's" in her handle--what a cutie she is...

Hey UU - I am sorry if I offended. I don't get the warm fuzzies from DH. That's just me.

I will not realize any joy if a Grateful Dead related site, and somebody's hard work ends. I apologize for being insensitive.

I contribute and donate to causes I believe in. I get the feeling that many of my friends here do the same.

Rob - I agree w/ you, DH is no(t) for me....However,I heard someone say recently. "It's hard to close a business. I signifies the death of a dream.".

That has stuck w/ me, as I am a small biz guy. I don't have to like him, but I feel his pain.

HF, no offense taken brother. Deadhook is not everyone's cup of tea. And though "we" lay claim to the title"The Kindest Place On The Internet", it can at times seem very unfriendly there.

Very sweet.
I was at this show. Memorial Hall (Soldiers and Sailors) was such a great place for music. It was actually my favorite place for music for many years. I think it held around 3,500 people in front of the stage, and maybe another thousand with obstructed views and not so great sound. Of course, after the lights went down, and the music started, those seats became empty.
Saw some good bands there, Jefferson Airplane, Black Sabbath, Canned Heat, James Gang, Led Zeppelin, and lots of others.
